Mitch Riley and Will Brown share this video of their Bivy-flying the end of this 2014 spring in... ALASKA!

Beautiful footage of these friends facing big mountains, big bears and big weather.

Mitch commented: "this place is definitely the most remote I've ever been. After one outlanding it took us two and a half days of serious bushwacking to get to a road."
"The flying conditions were not "Big Air"(...). In the middle of the day 1000fpm+ thermals are common. An interesting thing for me is trying to predict and make use of the air blowing down off the glaciers. Hard to predict, due to my lack of experience, winds make for some ignorance induced turbulence."
